Homemove - A Guide to Bidding

How to bid for properties with Rother Homemove

All the available properties are advertised each fortnight on the website www.homemove.org.uk. You will also be able to go to your local Community Help Point to view the properties either on a computer or as a printed list.

Difficulties with bidding?

We want to make sure that all applicants are able to bid for the vacant properties, even if they can't look on the website. 

In certain circumstances the Council will forward applicants a personalised freesheet which details all the properties that are available to the applicant in that bidding round. If you would like to be considered for this service please email the Homemove team on homemove@rother.gov.uk

If you feel you or someone you support will have difficulties bidding for themselves then the Council can bid for suitable properties on their behalf. Applicants requiring this service should complete the Request for Assisted Bidding form (related download) or call the contact centre on 01424 787000.


The adverts give you information about each property to help you decide which is suitable for you.

Remember you are only eligible to bid for properties in the area you are registered in, unless they appear in the list of properties you are eligible to bid for on the website or in your printed property list.

Properties will be advertised every other Friday and your bids must reach us by 2pm the following Wednesday.
